Potato Curry and Missi Roti (bread) – Vegan/Vegetarian

Ah, the cuisine of India! And the aroma of its spices! It made the Europeans salivate and their daring explorers risk their lives to find a sea route to India! That remarkable cuisine is now yours to create and enjoy through this class. 

The humble Potato Curry or Batata Nu Shaak is a comfort food from the western state of Gujarat. It is a traditional dish made very often in the households. This spicy, tangy, and sweet dish goes well with rice or Indian bread. 

Missy Roti is a unique, flavored flatbread made with wheat and chickpea flour. It is popular, both in the northern state of Punjab and the western state of Rajasthan. This tasty bread goes well with any curry or can even be eaten with yogurt. It can be made in advance and reheated just before serving.

Note: We will chop the vegetables in class. No prepping required. 

This class will be limited to 8 people for an intimate experience.
